During an interview given to Die Hard Chicago Bulls fansPippen embarked on the endless discussion about who is the best basketball player in history, whether Michael Jordan or LeBron James, and sided with the Los Angeles Lakers player.

“LeBron James will be the best player statistically speaking who ever played basketball. There is no comparison with him. Does that make him the best player he’s ever played with? I’ll leave it to the debate because I don’t think there is a great player because our sport is a team sport and one player can’t do everything,” he commented.

Soon after, he bet against Jordan: “I saw Michael Jordan play before he came to the Bulls and you saw him too. He was a horrible player and was horrible to play with.. It was all 1 vs. 1, all bad shots”.

“Suddenly, we became a team and started winning, and everyone forgot who they were,” he added.

It’s not the first time Pippen has targeted Jordan. Without going any further, in his memoirs she writes: “I’ll get to say it Mike ruined basketball. In the 80s, in the parks, everyone moved the ball and passed it to help the team. It ended in the 90s. The kids wanted to “be like Mike”. Well, Mike didn’t want to pass the ball, but he also didn’t want to rebound or defend the opposing team’s best player.”

Scottie Pippen won six rings at the Chicago Bulls.

He wanted us to do everything for him. That’s why I’ve always believed that LeBron James is the best he’s ever played, he does everything and represents everything this game is about.”

Pippen split court with Jordan in six championships won by the Chicago Bulls, in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997 and 1998.
